Rav Wilding was forced to pull out of diving show Splash! due to a leg injury, which he suffered during training.

The former Crimewatch presenter was hoping to take part in the new series of the ITV1 show, which kicks off on 4 January, however he has now undergone an operation that has ruled him out.

Get well soon, Rav!
